Creator of Meaning, many people do not seem to have the time, the energy, or the focus to develop a life enhancing purpose.

Study: In an article in The New York Times, Patrick Hill, a psychologist in Ottawa, observed: "Purpose reflects a commitment to broader life goals that helps organize your day to day activities." Following over 1,000 people (average age 80) for up to seven years, scientists in Chicago learned that having a purpose in life is associated with higher satisfaction, better health, better physical functioning, and less chance of cognitive impairment.

Artist of the Universe, help all us to see that our lives are works of art in progress and that having a rich sense of purpose brings us bounties that benefit us in any ways.
